This Ritual summons a helpful spirit of the past to guide and provide counsel to the Target Spirit on a specific topic selected at the beginning of the Ritual casting. The Local Plot Committee should be notified in advance of the Ritual casting, so a proper experience may be supplied.

Typically the spirit summoned will be of the same race as the Target of the Ritual, and from an area and time that is pertinent to the subject matter being discussed, though neither of these are guaranteed.

The summoned spirit must remain within the Circle of Power and will usually disappear after approximately 30 minutes, though this may vary greatly based on the whim of the spirit and how it perceives the interaction. The spirit may be conversed with and can recognize and interact with individuals outside of the Circle. The spirit has no immediate memory of how it died, but is otherwise as knowledgeable about its time in the past as they would be of the present.

The summoned spirit is under no compulsion to answer questions posed to them, but they will answer questions and give advice as truthfully as possible, although it is still possible for them to lie by omission or ignorance.

This ritual will typically summon a different spirit for each casting and does not interact negatively with other rituals that contact spirits, such as Spirit Farewell.

This ritual requires 6 reagents to cast as listed on the ritual scroll.


This ritual can not be spellcrafted.
